Genetic characterization of a core set of a tropical maize race Tuxpeño for further use in maize improvement
The tropical maize race Tuxpeño is a well-known race of Mexican dent germplasm which has greatly contributed to the development of tropical and subtropical maize gene pools. In order to investigate how it could be exploited ...
A general Bayesian estimation method of linear-bilinear models applied to plant breeding trials with genotype × environment interaction
Statistical analyses of two-way tables with interaction arise in many different fields of research. This study proposes the von Mises?Fisher distribution as a prior on the set of orthogonal matrices in a linear?bilinear ...
Screening experimental designs for quantitative trait loci, association mapping, genotype-by environment interaction, and other investigations
Crop breeding programs using conventional approaches, as well as new biotechnological tools, rely heavily on data resulting from the evaluation of genotypes in different environmental conditions (agronomic practices, ...
From genotype x environment interaction to gene x environment interaction
Historically in plant breeding a large number of statistical models has been developed and used for studying genotype x environment interaction. These models have helped plant breeders to assess the stability of economically ...
Doubled haploids versus conventional breeding in CIMMYT wheat breeding programs
Doubled haploid (DH) technology has been used in breeding programs for several decades and is currently the method of choice in a number of crop species, including barley (Hordeum vulgare L.), rapeseed (Brassica napus L.), ...
Genetics of resistance to yellow rust in PBW343 × Kenya Kudu recombinant inbred line population and mapping of a new resistance gene YrKK
Yellow or stripe rust, caused by Puccinia striiformis f. sp. tritici, is an important disease of common wheat (Triticum aestivum L.) worldwide. A recombinant inbred line (RIL) population, derived from the cross PBW343 × ...
Aegilops tauschii draft genome sequence reveals a gene repertoire for wheat adaptation
About 8,000 years ago in the Fertile Crescent, a spontaneous hybridization of the wild diploid grass Aegilops tauschii (2n = 14; DD) with the cultivated tetraploid wheat Triticum turgidum (2n = 4x = 28; AABB) resulted in ...
Height reduction and agronomic performance for selected gibberellin-responsive dwarfing genes in bread wheat (Triticum aestivum L.)
Improved ability to establish well when sowing at depth, into crop residues or hard soils should lead to increased yields in these situations. The semi-dwarfingRht-B1b and Rht-D1bgenes reduce plant height and increase grain ...
